Of all the insane ebay ads I have seen, this one takes the cake. This also may be the perfect present  to give someone you love this Christmas.  :laugh:

I don't believe the author meant that, I think he meant the laptop is owned by the student to use for schoolwork.

I think he probably did, because I know even less school-children with $200k chump change lying around for a Windows 95 tablet PC :p

Spiffy, used to have to work with a lot of ThinkPads back when I was employed by a large corporation and not myself, never saw one of the touch versions though.. nice for the timeframe. (Not so much for the price, good luck with that.) Certainly don't miss the "nipple mouse."

Hmmm, so 'flip' and touchscreen isn't really new then is it? 1994. I guess it really didn't take off then. Good idea pushing it again then.

OMG, that has a "super" connector on its back - parallel heaven.

 

This, my friends, is the perfect machine for world domination.

I have one like this, but definitely no where near as nice.  Somewhere I also have a model that you removed the back portion of the monitor half of the laptop, then you could put it on an overhead projector and the LCD screen would show.  Essentially you removed the backlight and the transparent part of the display remained.
